Dylan Bundy Updates

Recommended Posts

I'd be pretty happy with 2,105 from Gausman, Bundy, and Harvey. :)

With teams like the O's who are not usually able to retain good pitchers for more than seven years, I think a strong case could be made to get as much as they can from these guys while they've got them. The Orioles will never have a pitcher who throws more than 1,200 innings for them. Of course, the agents would scream bloody murder.

Bundy just being healthy is great news.

Agreed.

Mow em down!

Actually, I'm not even concerned about that, and I'm certainly not expecting that.

I'll be happy if he just loosens his arm up, gets his feet wet, and pitches a few games in the AFL without getting hurt.

Then, the name of the game in 2016 (in my rat's ass of an opinion) is to continue to remain healthy while pitching at the higher levels of the minors (at either Advanced-A Frederick, AA-Bowie, or AAA-Norfolk), even if he doesn't pitch well.

Then in 2017, I would like to see him pitch well at the highest level of the minors (Advanced-A Frederick, AA-Bowie, or AAA-Norfolk.)

Then perhaps in late 2017 or in early 2018, Bundy will be ready to contribute to the Orioles as (at least) an effective starting pitcher, if not a very good starting pitcher.

But that's just the view of an extremely patient Orioles fan like myself ...... as far as I'm concerned, his signing bonus money is already spent, so there is no reason for the Orioles not to keep him around and continue being extremely patient with him. They (the Orioles) have everything to gain and nothing to lose in taking this far-sighted approach.

You're right that ideally he wouldn't initially be thrust into the majors. Unfortunately his contract is such that he can't be optioned this year without exposing him to waivers. So it's either the bigs or the DL.

Oh, I did not know that.

Thanks.

For those following, today should by Bundy's first AFL action, followed by Friday and next Monday if all goes well. 12:35pm MST. Per Roch:

* Dylan Bundy is scheduled to start Monday for the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League. He also will take the mound on Friday and again the following Monday, assuming that his right shoulder responds favorably to the workload.

    • The pitcher …the guys here are overvaluing prospects. Id honestly trade quite a lot if it got us a ring.
    • Yeah, also interested to hear some thoughts on the draft from people!
    • Bradish was shut down and then did a full rehab before he started pitching again. Anyway go ahead and believe what you are going to believe, I'm not going to try and convince you, but there are some facts you are leaving out.
    • And how many of those teams rotations would you trade for the one that we have currently? In just about any/every projected playoff matchup save for the Guardians and maybe the Twins, the other team has the matchup advantage in the series. IMO those are long odds when trying to be successful in multiple rounds of the playoffs in October. Maybe you are comfortable with that? I am not.
    • I doubt Elias would be much moved to act a week before the deadline when asks by Sellers still skew high but I guess it is worth noting the Orioles play their Marlins series July 23-25. Who Tanner Scott and AJ Puk and Burch Smith and Vinny Nittoli play for in any given 3-game series probably doesn't make a game of difference, and the division probably won't come down to 1 game.  
    • Remember Bradish pitched for 3 months with a torn UCL.  And pitched well.  Until he couldn't.  Just because a tear happens doesn't mean it will curtail you right away.   I saw FB's face and body language during that game.  Something was off.    I can speak of this from personal experience.  I have a torn UCL and a bone chip the size of a quarter in my right elbow, and have had it for years.  Back from when I first got it looked at 20 years ago.   I just lived with the pain.  Sometimes up to 8 tylenol a day.   It always hurts and it wasn't until I was bowling one specific shot a few years ago and it completely blew out that I had to go to a orthopedist for it.   I just rested it for 3 months and have done nothing overhand as far as sports and working out since.  Anytime I throw overhand?  It kills. No way I could throw a baseball 80 times a game.  My arm would probably fall off.    The elbow really controls your overhand throws.  Underhand and side arm is not nearly as bad. 
    • How many teams won the trade deadline with a big time acquisitions and then won the championship.   2023 Rangers traded for rental Montgomery a solid mid rotation guy and rental Chapman nice bullpen piece. 2022 Astros traded for Trey Mancini 2021 Braves traded for Solor, Rosario, and Duvall.   2020 Covid year with weird deadline 2019 Nats traded for Daniel Hudson and Roenilis Ellis  2018 Red Sox traded for Andrew Cashner  2017 Astros traded for Justin Verlander which was a great pickup and changed there team when he bounced back but the trade itself was for very little in terms of prospects and more salary dump for rebuilding Tigers.    2016 Cubs trade for Chapman and Mike Montgomery.   2015 Royals traded for Johnny Cueto a veteran rental starter coming off all star season but pitched to a 4.86 ERA for Royals .  Also traded for Ben Zobrist.   2014 Giants traded for Jake Peavy as a rental.
